federal government that domestic workers would not be covered by some of the laws that protect, you know, the working conditions from all workers in the country. and, so, you still have a situation because of this veto where there are no protections that prevent an employer from requiring that a worker, you know, work 16, 24 hours without a break, that requires a worker to stay on the work site just in the event that the employer might need something without any pay. those are the kinds of things that this legislation was trying to prevent and it's unfortunate that the governor vetoed it. but i think it's also comforting that here in san francisco as that's happening at the state level, that we are moving in a direction of protecting workers and hopefully we will get to a point where the rest of the state will get to that point. the rest i submit. >> thank you, supervisor campos. and, mr. president, seeing no other names on the roster, that concludes roll call for introductions. >> madam clerk, why don't we go to general public comment. >> the next item on the agenda is the opportun

the city government channel. i'm the one that started that, i'm not going to get the hand for that because of same things the housing authority tenants went through 20 years ago. ladies and gentlemen, i am happy, tickled not pink by black right now because most of the tenants are african-americans. i stand here as the czar of the african-american out migration. i am so happy that my supervisor in the fifth district had the courage to come forward for something 25 years ago. we brought the needs of the redevelopment to the san francisco government channel. i can't say it all right now. i am ecstatic. i am so happy that the supervisors are doing something that i call community reform. we're going to show and demonstrate not only that department, but there are several other departments that need to come before the eyes of city government. i got a unique technique call in your face. right now in your face. i have been discriminated against. yes, commissioner wiener, you can yawn all you want. i am so glad kristina stepped forward and doing the right thing in the most progressive distri

guidelines. and just quickly, the tifia loans are government's eligible for the loans during the private contractors that are working with the government. both. >> i think that you are going to see... this is a setting of what is to come, judging by the amount of the increase to the tifia program, i think that we are going to see a substantial growth in the innovative program in the future, transportation bills. >> project delivery stream lining a few key things that i would like to point out. this was one of the key goals of the house republicans. map-21 expands the category exclusions so that the pedestrian projects in an existing right-of-way or less than $75 million in federal funds will recognize an expedited time line, so this will bode well for some of the smaller projects in san francisco that had serious challenged because of a prolonged review face in order to get the clearance to utilize the transportation funds. establishing the criteria to complete the major projects in four years and also authorizing program solutions for projects without changing neba. they now have delega

echo that diabetes as well obesity is a crisis in america. and we do need government to start taking leadership around the issue. regardless of the merits of this particular proposal, one thing i want to bring to city hall is a locally sourced healthy food insurance. santa clara county recently band all vending machines from their county facilities and i think we can lead by example, whether it's city hall, hospitals or our schools we should insist on healthy foods and healthy food choices and teaching our children how to grow their own food and cooking. so i would like to see an increase in community garden and an increase in the city with leadership around this issue. >> mr. everest is this your third or fourth use of the time card? >> i know i am out of these. [ laughter ] well, if we finish early i will come back to you. >> all right. >> now a question for miss breed and mr. resignato. san francisco currently provides free or low-cost health care to residents who can't afford private health insurance and do not qualify for coverage from the state or federal government? do you agr
